PCI for CTOs: A Shifting Paradigm

Treatment of CTOs with PCI has not been universally adopted due to a combination of technical issues and skepticism regarding its clinical benefits. Analysis of data from the British cardiac audit database, including 13,443 patients, has indicated that successful CTO PCI is associated with improved survival.

What's Next for Niacin?

The risk of adverse vascular events in patients with vascular disease remains significant despite optimal medical therapy. Niacin has been suggested to reduce this risk. A study of 25,673 patients with vascular disease has shown that the combination of niacin plus laropiprant, designed to reduce LDL and increase HDL, has been shown not only to reduce the risk of major vascular events but also to increase the risk of serious adverse events such as diabetes mellitus and bleeding.

Antipsychotic Medication & Risk of MI

Analysis of data from 56,910 patients has demonstrated that the use of antipsychotic medication is associated with a transient increase in the risk of MI. The risk increased with increases in the dosage of the drug, male patients, elderly patients, and patients with dementia. The risk may be mediated through dopamine type 3 receptor blockades.

Statins & Diabetes Link Strengthens

The diabetes risk associated with statin has been intensely debated. An Italian observational study of 115,709 patients has shown that the risk of new-onset diabetes increases as adherence with statin therapy increases. The authors have estimated that 280 patients require treatment with statins to cause 1 case of diabetes per year.
